Get me out of here.

tina in cabinet

Why am I in the cabinet? LOL

1974. I am willingly sitting in the cabinet. Under the stove, from the looks of it. I think this is where the Cheetos were kept.

This is my favorite place to sit. Hide. Eat. Play.

Some days I wish I could go back there and shut the door.

How could anyone be mean to little ol’ Me?


Plastic lids and drooling kids.
Baby blues and blondie ‘dos.
Slack-jawed, already flawed.
Only 1 year. How’d I get here?
Shut the door, please!

Hot Cheetos and Takis (Orange Is the New Black)

**SMALL, INFINITESIMAL PLOT POINT SPOILER ALERT FOR OITNB**

So. I’m white. As if you didn’t know. I’m an old, white lady who don’t know what Takis is.


(Ya burnt! is my favorite saying now.)


Or I didn’t until this season of Orange Is the New Black. I’m sorry if my watching OITNB is offensive to anyone, but it’s such a good show. The stories. Ugh, the stories. It makes me cry multiple times during the season. I’m hooked. I often wonder if I could make it on the inside and what compromises I would have to make to my ideology or person to survive.

Sometimes, I wish I was one of the ladies. Until I see a bathroom scene and then I go worship my very clean toilet and shower and bathtub. What I really wish is to be an actress on this show. It would so totally rock. Dream job. So juicy.

But I think if I identify with a character, it would be Red. Most people would say I’m the nun that left the show. But inside? I’m a Red. She’s kicking it! Love her. So spicy. Just like Takis!

After watching this season (small spoiler alert), I had to try Takis. What the hell is a Taki? I found them at the store, here in Florida. Never seen them before, but as of late, haven’t been looking at fried corn snacks for nourishment. But I had to at least taste them to see what all the fuss is about.

I would riot for Takis. Jus’ sayin’. They are delicious. Guy and I split a small bag.

I think I’m going to make a Chex Mix-Taki trail mix. Does that sound super white? Sorry. But as I said, I am an old, white lady. So what else would be good with Cheddar Chex Mix and Takis all jumbled together? Any suggestions? Can’t wait to hear what your ideas are. In honor of OITNB, I could make a watch party mix with Hot Cheetos in there as well.

Hit me with your Taki takes!

Loch Ness Cheeto

So, yeah. This was a Cheeto we found this summer by the pool. CheetosĀ® Brand Snacks has (or had) a contest to submit your weird Cheeto finds. I thought it looked like a giraffe’s head or, of course, Nessie. They might have used this very Cheeto to fake the infamous photo from 1934. (The Surgeon’s Photo) I don’t know how it wound up in our bag, but good that we debunked the photo finally! Once and for all.

I really want that Cheeto. I’m hungry. :/
